Avalanche warning for region Vest-Finnmark Saturday 29.05.2021

Danger level 1 - Low avalanche danger

Published:

Generally stable avalanche conditions, but the danger for small wet avalanches increases where there is most rain. Remember to use different approaches on wet and dry snow.

Avalanche problems

Wet snow (loose snow avalanches)

You can easily trigger avalanches on a few steep slopes. Avalanches are relatively harmless to people, but can knock you off balance. Can be dangerous close to terrain traps. (size 1)

Advice

Snow cover (in Norwegian)

I fjellet er det blitt dannet litt myke fokksnøflak her og der. Snøoverflaten ellers er frossen og hard i skyggesider over mildværsgrensa, og våt og myk under mildværsgrensa og der solen tar. Snøgrensa ligger på 200-300moh.

Det finnes fortsatt lagdelt snø høyt til fjells. Vedvarende svake lag av kantkorn er i ferd med å smelteomvandles, men det kan ikke utelukkes at de fremdeles kan føre til skred i enkelte heng ved svært stor belastning eller oppvarming.
